Photo shoots in the studio
There is no fee charged for Barney's own time shooting family and pet portrait sittings up to 30 minutes, portfolio shoots and boudoir portraiture up to one hour, and pack-shot product stills working inside the studio where the sitting is booked directly through HL-Studio.
For commercial work other than pack shots in the studio please refer to the location rates in the right hand column.
Bookings through agencies may incur a modest fee. For example, there is a standard fee of £20 on top of any other fees for bookings through websites such as Freelancer, and a minimum 15% surchage for work undertaken through Peopleperhour.
You pay ONLY for extended time on portraiture and portfolio shoots, ancillary services such as make-up artiste, post-production Photoshop, and the finished images themselves on a sliding scale, dependent on the quantity of the finished images required and the complexity of the work involved.

IMPORTANT: We endeavour to be competitive but realistic. We are not here to rip people off.
As an example we will offer a one-hour test photo shoot to any budding model free of charge, and give all the advice and help we can.
But we will be honest with you, we won't lie to you, and we'll do our best for you. After all, you are only human ... just like us.
